We are seeking a second couple or an individual to fill the roles of onsite Maintenance / Construction projects person and to assist in our Farm Store and some general tasks.

We have a cluster of renovated historic cabins located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We have 17 different lodging units that surround a "Healing Spring" that was discovered in 1883. Additionally, we have a few offsite cabins that we rent out as well. 

We live in beautiful part of the country with ample hiking nearby. We are a mile from the New River with canoeing, kayaking and great fishing. There are several charming towns close by with an active arts scene. 

Maintenance /Construction person should be familiar with carpentry, painting, drywall, and some plumbing and electrial, with the ability to troubleshoot and think outside of the box for solutions to issues that might arise. No landscaping work required as we have groundskeepers for mowing, etc.  No expectation that you would be "on call" either. Seeking someone who is a self starter as you will be working independantly on some projects and need to see them through from start to finish.

We can also sometimes use help in our farm store and with guests checking out. Additionally, we make home made jams, jellies along with artisan soapsand body products - we can use help with that if you are interested. We would be happy to teach you to make soap!

The work week typically averages 20 hours per week for the maintenance person and 5 hours per week for farm store / misc help. You get full days off to go and enjoy all that our area has to see and do. Should you want to get a 2nd job in town, we are in a very touristy area, so it is easy to pickup extra work. We can provide an RV hookup (with WiFi and all utilities) or possibly furnished lodging space. Compensation: Hookup and some meals in exchange for 25 hrs per week. We are happy to discuss pay for additional hours!
